About Me

Michael Shifrin, founding attorney at Shifrin Legal, is a practicing lawyer in the condominium and community association industry. Focusing on "the human side of the law," Michael strives to provide legal advice specially tailored to each client's unique needs. His method involves developing a deep understanding of the people involved and combining that with a mastery of human psychology and applicable law. Through Shifrin Legal, Michael hopes to bring his unique practice style to condominium and community associations throughout the Chicagoland area.

A distinguished and highly sought-after speaker, Michael Shifrin makes appearances at various trade shows, management companies and expositions. He is former co-chair of the Community Association Institute (CAI, Illinois Chapter) Membership Committee and has authored numerous articles for industry trade publications. He was named an Illinois "Rising Star" by Illinois Super Lawyer's Magazine three times throughout his career. This recognition is limited to the top 2.5% of lawyers under 40 years of age. Additionally, he was selected as an Emerging Lawyer in Illinois by Leading Lawyers, which recognizes those under the age of 40 that prove themselves professional and experienced in their legal career. Less than 2% of all lawyers licensed to practice law in Illinois have received this honor.

Michael Shifrin takes tremendous pride in working with his board member clients to help them create stable communities for years to come. Michael merges his mastery of condominium and community association law and his command of human psychology to deliver unmatched legal service to firm clients.

Highly personable and results-oriented, Michael Shifrin customizes the legal counsel he provides as he recognizes that board members and clients' needs evolve over time. According to Michael, Shifrin Legal is the best boutique condominium and community association law firm as it combines the resources and experience of a large law firm with the feel and personalization of a boutique practice. Shifrin Legal welcomes the opportunity to serve you and your community.
